Officials warn of dangerous snow, ice left on tops of vehicles

DULUTH, MN — The Cook County Sheriff’s Office reminds drivers to clean off snow and ice from tops of vehicles before hitting the road.

They said blowing snow from vehicle roofs can be “extremely hazardous” to vehicles traveling behind and passing cars.

Snow and ice chunks flying off vehicles, especially traveling at higher speeds, can cause crashes, force other drivers off the road, smash windshields, and can even trigger air bags to deploy.

For safety reasons and to avoid citation, Cook County reminds drivers to take the extra time to ensure tops of vehicles are cleared off as best as possible.
